About Lucky Ducks
This wacky, quacky matching game combines developmental skills for young children with the fun of a “My First Game.” Lucky Ducks offers all the benefits of memory and matching games in a format that’s easier for little fingers than cards. As a bonus, it helps kids with shape recognition and colors. Switch on the circular pond, and the ducks start swimming–the bottom side of each duck has a colored shape. Players take turns picking up a duck and looking at the color and shape; if it matches their color and shape they get to keep the duck. If it doesn’t match they put it back. The ducks continue to swim so it’s more challenging than a traditional memory game, but easy enough for even the youngest duck lovers to play. This extra challenge makes the game more fun for parents and kids to play together, with plenty of opportunities for fun and learning. For 2-4 players ages 3 and up.

What We Thought
Lucky Ducks came our way in December and let me say this was one of my favorite games. It is a match 3 game but with a twist. You choose a symbol (I like the blue star) and you are searching the duck pond to find 3 like ducks. The twist is this: the ducks are on the move constantly swimming around the pond and you have to remember which ducks are which so you can get 3 like ducks first.
I love that this is such a simple concept game that builds memory skills as well. Jack who is 5 absolutely loves this game and it has become a huge part of family game night. I like that there can be up to 4 players so we can add Willie as he gets older too.
Consider this game as a great children’s Valentines Gift as well as others featured on our 2019 Valentine’s Gift Guide.
